The Minnesota Legislature provided assistance in the form of categorical aid for staff development. State law required school districts to set aside two percent of their basic revenue for staff development. During the 2000 session, the Legislature allocated money to the Department of Children, Families, and Learning (CFL) for a number of Best Practice grants. One of these Best Practice grants was earmarked for Education Minnesota. This grant became the Teachers as Learners and Leaders (TALL) project.
Roger Anderson served as the project director for the TALL evaluation, with considerable assistance from Pat Seppanen. Rockie Keen, Robin Stubblefield, and Carolyn Wohlford analyzed the TALL documents and PDA reflections. Molly Gordon provided invaluable editorial assistance. We gratefully acknowledge the assistance of Norma Fairbanks and Janelle Warner from Education Minnesota who periodically provided us with a steady flow of material from the PDAs. Also, we thank the TALL Planning Team of Marcia Averbook, Garnet Franklin, Sara Gjerdrum, and Pat Reisenger for helping us in the evaluation design and the review of draft documents.
The evaluation of Year Two of the Teachers as Learners and Leaders (TALL) project was
authorized by Education Minnesota.
